Curran: I am one of the top P4P fighters in MMA


Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran has gone 9-1 since 2010 including wins over Roger Huerta, Mike Ricci, Joe Warren, and most recently Patricio Freire. With Curran’s only loss in the span coming by decision to Alvarez prior to his current run at 145 pounds, a stint in the Octagon certainly makes sense even if it is likely a long ways off.

Regardless of his long-term future, Curran considers himself to currently be one of the sport’s top competitors and expects to be in an even more elevated position come 2014 when a discussion on the UFC might merit re-visiting.

“I know this is gonna be a good year for me. I want to stay as active as possible. We have Daniel Straus next. I just gotta go home, get a couple X-Rays, make sure everything’s okay, and I’m gonna be right back in the gym training,” said Curran recently. “I definitely feel like I’m one of the best fighters, not just in my weight-class but pound-for-pound in the world.”

You can't be p4p if you don't fight the best in the world. Until he fights and beats the best, not even close.

the first day i ever saw Pat train, i new he was going to be one of the top pound for pound fighters out there. This is great to see his career take off. He trains like an animal and is a good dude too. You can't help but want to see him succeed. Currans MMA is full of great fighters, and great martial artist

Pat is awesome and i agree with him; one of the tops.  I think he's a titan at 145, still very good 155, but not the right weigth for him IMO.  The Chandler fight would be awesome, but I think he gets pushed around a bit and Chandler is f'ing beast right and getting more dangerous every fight.

He's good, no doubt.  Not a top P4P fighter though, not even close.  I don't even think he's top 3 in the world at FW.  I'd put him behind Aldo, Edgar and Mendes. If you don't think Edgar qualifies as a FW yet then Curran is number 3.
